. that seemed like we were going to have a deal, no problem. obama won the election. he'll hand them a plan. he'll make some small changes. that's how congress works, of course. pass it and we'll be done. we'll go home for christmas. not so much. president obama did hand them a plan as treasury secretary tim geithner made a special trip all the way to john boehner's office on capitol hill. he delivered the plan to speaker boehner, a plan pretty much identical to the one president obama just won the election on. you might have thought that would have been leading, the problem would have been solved. not so much. >> flabbergasted. i looked at him, you can't be serious. i've just never seen anything like it. >> so when you said you wanted to be led, you just wanted a plan, that was a joke? so the white house agreed, then, no more leading, that was not what their partners in the house of representatives wanted. instead, white house and boehner entered into intense lengthy negotiations. and by the end of them they seemed really close to a deal. the white house had agreed to cut their tax ask by abou
of the year, the presidential election. that was how it ended. barack obama beating mitt romney and an end to a bitter season that started early with the g.o.p. primaries and events like this. >> we saw some of this black church in south carolina where a woman asked you why you referred a president obama as the food stamp president. it sounds as if you are suitcase to go belittle people. >> first of all, juan, the fact is that more people have been put on food stamps by barack obama than any president in american history. [ cheers and applause ] >> i know among the political kli correct and i'm supposed to you use facts that are uncomfortable. [ laughter ] >> so that was just part of a long and memorable primary season. juan, is that your highlight of the year. [ laughter ] >> my highlight? it is telling again for newt gingrich. he in a subsequent debate when we was asked about extramarital life and enough about these questions and made the media successfully a target of his ire. >> jon: on the republican side, jim, it is often the case that the media go after republican candidates? >> rig
could be next. isn't there a sense in the republican party that obama won a comfortable re-election? >> yeah but -- >> yeah but. >> that was boehner's mistake. >> he thought that was reality. >> he thought that was reality, and he learned the other night that it wasn't. >> republicans don't see it in that world. what covers the sky in their world? >> it's not blue. >> fiscal red. >> it's not blue, that's for sure. when he realized he couldn't round up the votes, he had to recognize that they did not respond to the election the way that other rational factions have responded to elections over the past decades or centuries even. >> what do we make, glen, of this captain queeg we have, scared of his own crew, scared of weather conditions, worried about what's going on and still has to be captain? >> i mean, the simple reality is he's the speaker of the house, but each one of those people runs in their individual district, and these tea party members in particular, the group that cantor has the most control over or represents the most, they answer to an electorate that feels very much i
president obama, and they helped him stay a elected and one of the reasons was dismissing stuff like that. and the second thing, it's fox news dismissal syndrome, fnds. when it shows up on fox news and it is reported, then the other networks go it's not a story. you get the weird irony that people in the media are hoping that the american people are ignorant t used to be the media would say if only we had a more educated public. now they are getting educated on the story, and, no, it's not a story. >> this is a very serious case obviously. a lot of people disheart ended there wasn't a more thorough investigation and sitting on documents and not coming forward with what the american people needed to know. and benghazi, this story is still going on, the investigation, who is going to testify, who is not. and still more questions than answers. >> amazing. there is a guy in jail because of a video that was blamed for these riots and for this horrible, horrible tragedy. the real scandal is why did they push this video? and if one person could just answer that question. it wasn't a mistake. the
dead cat drone program, president obama sought re-election in a campaign where we finally got the sophisticated adult political debate we've longed for. >> it would be obamabaloney. >> romnesia. romney hood. >> big bird. >> thank goodness someone is finally getting tough on big bird. >> reporter: it was an epic battle of the world views. president obama launched 1,000 republican campaign posters when he said that -- >> you didn't build that. >> reporter: true to his word when he said that obama didn't create jobs. when a closed-door chat went public. >> there are 47%. >> reporter: and while all this was going on, joe biden was just generally enjoying himself. >> i always say what i mean. >> reporter: in the end, neither a dominant first debate -- >> i have no idea what you're talking about. >> reporter: nor a virtuoso convention performance by clint eastwood -- >> what do you want me to tell romney? he can't do that to himself. >> reporter: nor this -- >> you know what i'm saying! >> reporter: could carry him. so close to the oval office, romney now mostly hangs out at disney
't consummate with the american people. president obama just ran on a program of resisting some of the fundamental ways in which the republicans wanted to change medicare and raise taxes on people over $250,000. he won the election and people from the very red districts elected in the house simply have not adapted to that reality. >> let me go to jonathan chait and the primal scream and the election president obama won, but you wouldn't know this in washington. doesn't it feel sometimes like one side experienced maybe a different election? >> they did. for the house republicans, they don't have to worry about public opinion. the house republicans got fewer votes than house democrats, but the house republicans won anyway because the districts are drawn in such a way the vast majority of republicans are insulated from public opinion. this conversation we're having of what do the republicans have to do to win back middle america, that's not relevant to them. the only thing they have to worry about is a tea party challenger. that's the only way these guys are going to lose. that's p
. the bush era tax cuts will expire at the end of this year. obama was elected with a surplus of about 3 million votes. he won the election. he campaigned on this issue. again, the speaker can't take yes for an answer. the president has presented to him something that would prevent us from going over the cliff. it was in response to something the speaker gave to the president himself, but, again, i guess with the dysfunctional republican caucus in the house even the speaker can't tell what he's going to do because he backed off even his own proposal. mr. president, the house, we hear this so often, is controlled by the reap warnings and we acknowledge that. i would be most happy to move forward on something that senator mcconnell said they wouldn't filibuster over here that he would support and that boehner would support, if it were reasonable, but right now we haven't heard anything. i don't know, and it's none of my business, i guess, although i am very serious, if the speaker and the majority leader, the republican leader over here are even talking. i mean, what's going on here? mr. p
everyone was talking about the next day? i don't mean the historic re-election of president obama. i mean karl rove's inability to process the fact it happened. >> do you believe that ohio has been settled? >> no, i don't. look, if we are calling this on the basis of 74% of the vote being in. when 77% is in, the director of the ohio campaign for romney on the other end of the line refreshing the page every few seconds. >> no word on if he's refreshing the website. seriously? >> i feel like you have been mean to karl rove. you have to understand where he was coming from. he wasted over a quarter billion dollars from failing. it was epic. what am i supposed to do. you just wasted millions of dollars. other people's money. people gave you money. you said i got this, i understand this. they gave you hundreds of millions of dollars, you fail and the camera is on you. i would have been -- ohio doesn't exist. i don't see why you are counting votes from them. >> i was waiting for him to say you want evidence, i stole the 2004-2008 election. >> they sent them back to the decision desk. you have to
to washington the day after christmas. senator from hawaii, laid to rest. president obama and the first lady attended the memorial service. he was the first japanese american elected to both houses of congress and the second largest serving u.s. senator. he was 88 years old. >> back here in maryland a police shooting in baltimore county, a police officer opened fire, killing a man who had a knife. that's where derrick is tonight with the details. >> reporter: police say the officer was acting in self- defense when he confronted and shot a suspicious man he found back here behind this gas station. it all started with an officer on routine patrol as he passed the shell gas station at ed monton around 3:45 in the morning. he noticed a suspicious man behind the building. police say when the officer asked the man to come out from behind the building, the man pulled out a knife. >> the officer attempted to use a taser to stop the situation, but it was ineffective. the man refused repeated commands to drop the knife. >> reporter: police say fearing fo
to domestic programs. democrats, of course have no intention of doing that. especially after president obama won the election. senate democratic leadership aide tells me that will remains a 50/50 chance we will get a mini deal temporary extension of tax cuts under $250,000 before the january 1 deadline when we would go over the cliff. will are no assurances of that. a white house official told me as president obama prepares to fly back to conduct and participate in the negotiations at the end, there has been no progress over the holiday weekend. michelle, i'm afraid that people who are looking for a deal and looking for a deal by december 31, all hope is not lost. it is not looking good at the moment. >> let's go back to this hitting the debt ceiling on monday. we learned of this because treasury secretary tim good night mother sent a letter to the honorable harry reid majority leader. and that's where he outline it is fact that in three business days, the summit government is going to run out of borrowing capacity. john, if there were a treasurer in a business who went to their boss and sai
thought of what the congress said there? >> he makes a good point there. the pressure of the left. obama won a re-election and he learned that when he tried to negotiate in good faith with boehner and sort of move toward the middle and give concessions, criticized pretty sharply before maybe going too quickly to do that. i think he'll stand up longer this time. i don't think he's going to go lower. republicans of course want equal amount of spending cuts and the goal, the catch and how they do that. the president wants them to come forward with a plan. what do you want to cut? put it on paper. we'll see if that happens. won't happen in the next few days. i think again talking about more of a temporary measure. >> political fallout and as you heard congressman cummings there, meredith, he seems to think it will be -- fault aimed toward the republicans and won't it hurt both sides at the end of the day with the number of options on the plate? >> well, sure. i mean, if you look at congressional approval levels, excuse me, nationwide, i mean, people don't like congress. they don't like the f
president obama's reelection. it was a presidential election that was close. it was fascinating. it was really hard fought and i think it was very consequential. are there was a possibility that president obama was going go down as a jimmy carterresque figure, one kicke term kicked . he has four more years now. the possibility that the economy will turn around and he will be able to go down as a successful president. i also think and this is a big reason why time made him our person of the year, he had a very interesting diverse winning coalition. a lot of people say it was kind of the new face of america. a large minority nonwhite vote. young voter to a more liberal than older vote hers. i think you can see the changing face of america there. that would be the number one story. right behind and related to it is chief justice john roberts guiding the supreme court to a decision that upheld the healthcare law. finding a compromise solution where he said that the individual mandate might not be constitutional but that the law could be justified as a tax. he find this kind of surpr
this morning. you know, the american people elected president obama to lead, but he spent most of the morning today playing the blame game, and i say let's get the blame game over with and start talking about solutions for the american people because, you know, every -- every dollar you take, you can take every dollar from every rich person in america and still not balance this nation's budget. until we start talking about real spending cuts and structural reform to the entitlement programs, we're going to go broke. we'll go the way of greece, and the president hasn't moved off that. he's still playing politics with these issues, and frankly i think most of us now don't care who gets the blame. we're concerned about our economy and about our paychecks. >> richard, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell took to the senate floor this afternoon and said despite the setback all is not loss. >> there's no situation that remains an impossible sticking point. the sticking point appears to be a willingness and interest or frankly the courage to close the deal. i want everyone to know i'm willing to g
election we learn something new and try to build on it. just like the obama campaign in michael's article say they built on the article in 2004 when they increased his turnout. and we never saw it coming. this is what you build on. and in their software program in 2008 which was terrible. then they build on that and build this software that worked this time around. >> even b mike huckabee couldn't have beaten this guy, huh? >> you tried to get me on this before. i think huckabee would have been a great candidate for us and i think we could have been beat obama because we would have been able to frame the issues differently. >> perhaps more authenticity. >> but thanks for trying. >> i want to hear you say it some day. great journalism. it's the stuff that i eat for breakfast. chip saltsman, happy new year to both you guys. >>> up next, the viral videos that define the political scene this past year. a look back. this is "hardball," the place for politics. she keeps you guessing. it's part of what you love about her. but your erectile dysfunction - you know, that could be a question of bloo
. by floating other names. did obama's miss like bork even getting nominated? i don't like this process. >>> and new reports the tea party process was imploding, imploding well before election day. including an attempt with dick armey getting aimed. >>> plus we'll have the top viral videos of 2012 including this one. >> we're all on our own if romney has his way. and he's against safety nets. if you fall, tough luck. so i strongly suggest that you wake the [ bleep ] up. >> actually, that's samuel l. jackson, he's a nice fella personally. this is "hardball," the place for politics. he really is a nice guy. i met him. we were so blessed when we had triplets if by blessed you mean freaked out about money well we suddenly noticed that everything was getting more expensive so we switched to the bargain detergent but i found myself using three times more than you're supposed to and the clothes still weren't as clean as with tide. so we're back to tide. they're cuter in clean clothes. thanks honey yeah you suck at folding [ laughs ] [ female announcer ] one cap of tide gives you more cleaning
on the wealthiest of americans in because that's how president obama ran the campaign and got re-elected. >> you know what? i'm scratching my head. sometimes say to -- feeling sorry for speaker boehner, i guess. 25, 30 of the tea partiers primarily who just won't listen to the speaker and he thought that he had the votes or twist arms to get the vote and made -- bold announcement before to put the vote on the floor. and he could not do it. and so, i've listened to some of those 20 and 25 individuals and listened to their rational is what has been me a little worried about a deal getting done. busine does boehner get some leverage after january 1st? some were defeated in the election. does he get more leverage than now or not? i don't know. but i'm hopeful that maybe doing this break like i was having christmas dinner with some, they were having dinner with some relatives and telling them, go back, agree upon something because the country built upon compromise. >> if we get something small done in the short term, because the window of time left is so lessened, with the 113th congress coming in, d
turn, we're simply not going to see the democrats take them up on that because president obama since that letter has won the election and now we're looking at the possibility of a mini deal that would get enacted before january 1st but so far all we've heard are the sounds of silence in the negotiations. a senior white house official told me today when i asked was there any holiday season progress, back channel progress over the past couple of days, got a one-word reply, no. second, the democratic senate leadership says there's a 50/50 chance that we'd get a deal between now and january 1st, but they don't have any progress signs to point to in a tangible way. that's sort of a gut feeling that that will happen, and senate republican leadership aides said we haven't heard anything from the white house or senate democrats, so right now it's looking stalemated. there still is time for people to come back and pass a temporary kick the can kind of solution that would at least get us past january 1st for a month, two months, three months, but we've got to wait and see over the next couple
of the predictions for the white house in 2013. >> president obama's re-election campaign was long on effective arguments but short on details of exactly what he will do after his second-term inaugural parade takes place on pennsylvania avenue. suddenly, three big priorities have come into focus. tax reform, immigration, and gun control. tax reform is driven by the fiscal cliff debate. it is the only way to maximize revenue while minimizing tax rate increases. but this white house has always been skeptical tax reform could become a reality given support for popular loopholes so count this obama goal unlikely to happen. comprehensive immigration reform took a back seat in president obama's first term. but after hispanic voters helped him win a second one, he can't avoid it now. republicans know fighting the issue could bury them in future elections. it's likely to happen. and the school massacre in connecticut is now elevated gun control. democrats had been steering away from the issue out of political fear. connecticut changed the equation and the president will offer proposals in his state of
. no solutions. no signs of progress for president obama. this left haven't hour scramble represents a test how he would balance the power of his re-election with his commitment to compromise. so who is to blame if both sides can't bridge the divide? tara dowdell, democratic strategist, with former jim mcgreevey and david webb, accident cirrus xm patriot radio. good to see both of you. i want to begin with this. last night on fox news, this is what south carolina senator lindsey graham had to say about this meeting today. he said, quote, anytime you announce a meeting publicly in washington it's usually for political theater purposes. so, tara, is this all show? >> well i agree, obviously there is always some political theater going on in politics. i would say this year's oscar though goes to john boehner for pretending toe be nexting in good faith. throughout this whole process he has been the primary person pointing fingers and the democrats offered several different, several different opportunities for the speaker to come to the table, compromise opportunities. most recently even agreeing to
, but there is no substance of an agreement. >> what we have are on the obama side, you have an election that pretty much took a mandate, if you will where the very issue of taxes was legislated and the americans said they agreed with the president saying that taxes rise for the wealthy and the right wing and the republican party who won by a wide margin in deeply conservative areas. they have a mandate. they are cancelling each other out. they each think they are -- that is why we are frozen. i don't know if it's been that way. the mechanics have been such that they are polarized to the point where it's paralyzing. >> the thing that baffles me and it sort of angers me is the conservative republicans, the president's vote in state after state in the electoral college. it used to be in politics if it was more respect for the voter and the voter speak today, one of the big things they seem to speak out on was this idea that raised taxes on people making $1 million or more. we are at a stand still on that. your sense of things in the house especially. the lack of respect for the voter, this idea that we have thi
-- send our elected officials a respectful but potent measurmes. the writing exercise will be carried out employees at 120 starbucks around d.c. president obama and congressional leaders will go back to work thursday. if they do not reach a deal by next week, tax hikes and automatic government spending cuts take effect. >> shoppers descended to grab christmas sales. they rushed into shops when the doors opened. some stores cut prices up to 75%. the day after christmas is very important for retails in central london. more than $80 million is expected to be spent today. 100,000 shoppers are expected to pass. the deadline for the fiscal cliff edging closer. the president and lawmakers will return to washington. what lies ahead and is there time to reach a deal? i look at the true holiday spectacular in howard county. stay tuned as we look at the symphony of lights. >> many families packed up and took a drive through the symphony of flights. this is the 19th year for the gigantic light show. tommy culp was there and brought this back with him. >>♪ >> how nice. that is all for me. here is wh
and his son were killed in the crash. president obama attended a service for the late senator daniel inouye. a salute was fired as his coffin arrived. he was the first japanese american elected to both houses of congress. he died of respiratory complications last sunday. george h.w. bush is still in stable condition in a houston hospital. he has been hospitalized since november while undergoing treatment for bronchitis. he still needs to build up some strained before he can be released. the discharge date has been said -- no discharge date has been set. >> more americans are parting with their money. consumer spending rose .6% in november. the boost shows growing consumer confidence in their personal finances and the country's overall economy. if a tablet device is on your list this year, you are in the company. the number of adults that owns a tablet has more than doubled. we can expect the number of americans with a tablet to skyrocket in the next few years. last year for 34 million americans owned a tablet and that number is expected to jump in the next four years. disney will unv

at that chart. >> all handgunmakers, talking about this before, how ironic you can the obama administration was seen strict irbefore the elections and hand brought forward the dematte manned that might have been in the future, people wanted to bite hand guns. >> always the case. any time the debate over gun control flares up. >> does the framework of the "wall street journal" piece tell us anything new about best buy, sears? >> for sears, we have seen them cut costs, cut costs, sears and the kmart stores. it seems that this year the reckoning, the kmart operation, people have lost track of that if you send people inside kmart today, i think you basically find a relatively horrifying situation for the average consumer. i mean, really bad stores that haven't been given the proper maintenance budgets that they deserve. for -- is it life or death? no h i think for the kmart part of it, there will be some sort of reckoning. i say life or death maybe moves more into that category for radioshack that stock has just been getting pummeled. tried to adapt themselves as mobile phone retailer and margi
on entitlement reform on spending cuts. >> well, that's right. president obama believed and the democrats believe they have a mandate after the election. now, a mandate, you know, depends what you call a mandate. the election was not really close, but it wasn't also a grand slam for the democrats either. so there's a real difference in who -- what the mandate is here. and democrats don't feel they need to compromise. i think they think if we go over the fiscal cliff, they will have even stronger negotiating power. that remains to be seen because oftentimes when taxes go up and there is something that hits the economy really hard and puts it into a tailspin, it's the president who takes the blame. so i think even the president is wondering who's going to foot the blame for this one. but at this point i think the democrats feel they have the upper hand at this moment. if they hold tight, they will force the republicans to capitulate. i don't see that happening. i think both sides are really going to have to give in before we get a final deal. jon: so we'll have to see, you know, which side wins the
